Hi thanks for your help, But what I want is where can I get the war file of my own web application I did with formspider.

Hi Onketata, There is not a new war file every time you create a new web app. They all use the same deployed war file by default.

Hi Yalim, thanks for ur helpfull comments. I get the war file of my application in my drive myapp.war and I tried to deploy in tomcat changing the DB settings. But still a problem to me is: I use an existing tomcat installation for deployment and give context name of myapp, after doing a web application named sampleapp1, I tried to deploy in tomcat but when I opened from a browser http://localhost:8080/myapp it's showing the Formspider IDE rather than my own web app named sampleapp1. help!!! tnx in advance!!

Hi Onketata,

What exactly are you trying to do? Are you trying to run your formspider application or do you want to deploy it into another Formspider installation?

Hi Kocak, Here is what I need to do: 1. I install formspider with contextroot=sampleapp 2. I did a web application named myapp. 3. I want to deploy myapp in tomcat and access it w/o the IDE. But when I did this as per the tutorial and run it from the tomcat it shows me the formspider IDE rather than home page of my application. my tomcat path= my sampleapp path= which opens the formspider IDE when I run my app from the IDE, here is the path= So how can I access my app with a proper name?

You should use url rewrite tools in order to show human readable URLs. http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/en/rewrite/
